moment for the democrats. the republicans are already trying to make it hard. president obama reached out right after the election victory. he was told that they were already asleep. today speaker boehner told abc news tax increases are still off the table. >> putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming or tax code. i would do that if the president were serious about solving our spending problem and trying to security or entitlement programs. >> revenue through reforming or tax code? this is the same stuff voters just rejected. this was a bright spot in boehner's interview. he was asked if republicans will still pursue full repeat. >> i think the election changes that. it's pretty clear the president was reelected. obama care is the law of the land. >> but you won't be extending the time next year trying to repeal obama-care? >> there are certainly maybe parts of it we believe that need to be changed. we may do that. no decisions at this point. >> wait a minute. a short while later, boehner walked back his answer on twitter. obama care is the law of the land, but it's ra
, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> president obama will make a statement tomorrow in the east room. the automatic spending cuts and tax hikes kicked in january 1st if washington can't reach a deal. a lot of people fear it's going to be a repeat of what happened in 2011 when the republicans 4e8d the debt ceiling hostage to get what they wanted. but thing, i guess, you could say are a bit different. we are two days removed from a landslide victory, as well as a new 55-45 democratic senate majority. the president is also the winner of the popular vote. did you hear that, republicans? winner of the popular vote with the majority of the country supporting him. the only area in government where the democrats fell shot was in the congress, the house of representatives. the should be enough to deny president obama a mandate. mitch mcconnell made a statement saying the voters have not endorsed the failures or successes, simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do, together with a congress that restored balance to washington after two years of one-party control. no

with obama, i think the republicans -- he was trying to do a lot of stuff but they kept backing him down. they would not help. i think this time around since he got office, they need to come together and work with him. host: thank you for calling. we will go now to alex from pennsylvania on the independent line. what are your top priorities for president obama? caller: i will speak as a rural resident of pennsylvania. i cannot speak for everyone, but i feel as a youth voter, somebody who enjoys and prides himself in rural life and our heritage and industries that the disrespect president obama has shown our region in northern pennsylvania regarding national -- natural-gas drilling shows his disregard for our local and rural economy is. and what are really the economic engines of our region. to say he is sacrificing us for a energy policy that is politically expedient. i hope he will keep his promise that he focuses on sustainable energy and abandon his support for -- our realtor is shutting down. we have barry farms here shut down since 2007. -- dairy farms since 2007. that is america's

to unseat president obama, republicans are now at a crossroads. stay extreme and lose relevance or go moderate and risk splitting the party. errol louis and tina depue join me next. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> eliot:. the more we understand about the outcome of this election, the more the republican party looks like the party of angry old white men and the republican party no longer reflects the change in demographics of the country. the grand ole party on a road to on obsolescence. here to join us is the host of of -- errol louis and tina dupuy. tina, let me start with you -- you look at the cross tabs in who voted for the republican party and more importantly, who didn't and then you look at a demographics of this country. they're like going over a cliff unless they fundamentally change themselves do. they know that? do they have the capacity to chan

of the fiscal cliff, but the big question is not what will president obama propose, but will republicans automatically oppose it like they have. did they learn anything on tuesday? do they know the american people don't want obstructionism, they want action. but first let's get the latest from lisa ferguson out in los angeles hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill good morning, everyone. the fiscal cliff is a big issue moving forward and there is a showdown in store. while john boehner has offered up a bit of a compromise he and harry reid have different ideas. >> people making all this money have to contribute a little bit more. >> the congressional budget office are analyzing person provisions of the fiscal cliff. it finds letting these bush tax cuts expire is the least harmful way to improve the economy. but the gop would rather see lower rates and eliminating loopholes. yesterday senator chuck smumer called it a rumpled stillskin fantasy. earlier this week the president gave a very heart-felt speech to his staff and even teared up a bit. >> you guys -- [ inaudible ]

here. president obama here not offering as obvious an olive branch to the republicans as boehner did on his side. boehner's was a little more a abject in tone. the president talked about being willing to hear some options on reform in health care. of course reform means cuts in this context. he's talking about entitlement cuts there, even obliquely. that is a concession to the republicans so that seems to set up these negotiations as a deal between entitlement cuts and revenue raisers. i think we can parse through the nuance here an see where this thing is going. >> john harwood, do you think, given what we've heard from mr. boehner this morning and now the president, do you think they can pull this off and get this done by the end of the year knowing so well the way washington works? >> i think it would be very difficult. i wouldn't bet on that. what i would bet on is a start, a signal, the beginning of a process that would result in a solution some time early next year. can always be surprised. i have to say, i was surprised by how quickly john boehner after the election extended a
of the travel problems that would create. >>> now, to the fiscal storm. today president obama and republican house speaker john boehner both laid out ideas to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. tax increases and spending cuts are due to hit in january, but today it seemed the two leaders and the bipartisan deal are still worlds apart. steve handelsman is on capitol hill with more on that. steve? >> you got it right. this is a restart of a high-stakes negotiation between those two men. the president and the speaker. the problem is beginning today where they left off, which is far apart. in a speech at the white house, president obama claimed the election proved most americans agree with his plan. that he calls balanced. cutting spending and hiking taxes to avoid the fiscal cliff. he said he's flexible -- >> but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> reporter: he's calling in members of congress f
took more votes away from the republicans than he did from obama. even the size of president obama's margins in the various states, there is no state currently in which johnson's marchant -- johnson's vote would have made a difference. it looks like that might of been the case in florida, but this -- at this point it is not. host: is there one firm that does all of the exit polling, or many? guest: it is one from the dozen for a consortium of the major broadcast networks and the associate press -- it is one firm for a consortium of the major broadcast networks and the associated press. it asks them to fill out ballots showing how they voted for and a few basic demographic factors. the supplement that with a telephone survey to capture people who voted early -- they supplement that with a telephone survey to capture people who voted early. the put those two things together, and then they match the turnout that the exit polls predicted in a particular precinct with the actual turnout in that precinct. the exit poll goes through a process of what is called waiting. you have to await t
and the republicans outspent team obama the democrats in the last three months of this campaign. actually in the entire campaign. >>> while president obama is already getting knee deposition in the second term issue, the fiscal cliff, he also had some house keeping to do in his cabin cabinet, mainly replacing a handful of high profile secretaries, including hillary clinton, tg, tim geithner, leon panetta. they're all expected to leave sometime in the next few months, possibly, even before the end of the year. secretary of state hillary clinton repeatedly said she's on her way out. >> i want to then take some time to get reconnected to, you know, the stuff that makes life worth living. you know, family, friends, the sort of activities that i own joy. >> of course, this one-time rival to barack obama may be replaced by another former presidential candidate john kerry. he, of course, is chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate the president's national security adviser tom domilan and u.s. am bass kor susan rice who may some controversial to republicans because sh
collins, news 4. >>> today president obama and republican house speaker john boehner both laid out ideas to avert the so-called fiscal cliff next year. and it seems clear the two leaders and a bipartisan deal are still worlds apart. keith russell is in our newsroom with more on this high-stakes battle. keith? >> wendy, president obama's first remarks since being re-elected that he and congress have no choice. reach an agreement before the end of the year or taxes will go up for everyone, which could mean another recession. that's a deadline that's looming and the so-called fiscal cliff. in a speech at the white house today, the president said he's open toioids, as long as the wealthiest realize they have to do their part. >> i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that. >> reporter: just about two h r hours before president obama spoke, speaker of the house john boehner had his own news conference saying raising the highest r
to a really good balance between single payer and what the republicans are looking for and obama-care, this country would be fiscally in a better condition down the line. finally, the supreme court appointees. the most important thing that democrats and president obama can do is to realize that within a few years there will probably be some folks that will retire, and a legacy that will live on will be those appointees. host: i will have to leave it there. let me divide that. gail russell chaddock, the first three of the gop side, where he says they need to unite, the social issues are ones favored by americans, which is interesting given the ballot initiatives were four states voted in support of gay marriage, and the third was you have to do away with a pledge from grover norquist. guest: there are strong convictions for this party, and for tea party members, they're looking back at a golden age, and they see deed still here as a vindication -- and they see as still being here as vindication. on social issues, there will be a fight over social issues, but it will be any differe
. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senate republican leader, mr. mcconnell but was told they were asleep. i realized it was late night and everything but if the president calls you and you are asleep, do you not get woken up? isn't that sort of a standing order? one of the things we can all agree on the sort of thing you get out of bed for? the presidents an on the phone, okay, i'll wake up and take the phone no matter who you are? no. john boehner and mitch mcconnell were still asleep and no woke them up. since then, they have made statements about what they see happening in this next year, indicating that maybe they also slept through the part of the night when the results of the election came in. mr. mcconnell put out a statement what's clear about this election is that the voters have not endorsed president obama's first term. the fact that the president won the election is not an endorsement of the president? filling in a little bubble next to the man's name on a piece of paper is technically how we endorse a person in america. mr. mcconnell does not see it that way
turning out huge for barack obama. what must republicans do to appeal to this growing item graphic group? we will debate it. >> we have got four americans dead. and we are still saying i think it's the result of the video that was on youtube. the people of america should be outraged. >> laura: congress turning up the heat on the obama administration over its handling of the terror attack in benghazi, libya. so will we finally get the answers we have been looking for? we'll have a special report. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi,everyone. i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. disbelief and despair on the republic party. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo since romney and electoral landslide tuesday night. i feel like i have become the chief psychologist for conservatives. voters who were young conservative thinkers, thinkers young conservatives in the 1980s are now wondering whether all is lost ann coulter was on my radio show yesterday. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy,
in the house. this year obama won by a narrower majority and republicans retained a big, retained a relatively large house majority although not as large as democrats have after 2006 and 2008 elections. so i think john boehner has some basis for saying that if the president has a mandate so do house republicans. the popular vote for the house republicans will probably come out to something like the same 50-48 by which obama beat romney. that hasn't been fully tabulated yet. back about 20 years ago, circa 1990, political scientists and pundits said the republicans have a lock on the presidency and the democrats had a lock on the house and they had all sorts of good reasons why this was so. the democrats picked the lock on the presidency in 1992 and republicans broke the lock on the house in 1994. starting with those elections democrats have won four of the six presidential elections and plurality of the popular vote and other republicans have won majorities in six out of eight elections for the house of representatives. so, it is eight out of 10 in the house of representatives. looking back fro
. the republicans didn't give them enough to hang their hat o. obama offered class-based politics, which was just a-- >>> class was one part of it. but there was also, you know, look, he's appealing to one demographic group, individually after another, a war on women. i thought the comments by joe biden, racially charged. there was an appeal by surrogates that were over the top, romney hates women. he's a murderer. he is a tax cheat. he's an evil capitalist. and he was a decent man. we agree here. he was beaten up unfairly. >> a businessman who lacked a message that was inclusive about growth, innovation, leadership and the future. >> he kept -- his battlelines were things we agree with. but this is not a competent president. but to the people who don't understand competent or incompetent, they understand personality, they're like the president and they remain liking him because he said, things are tough. i relate to you. he sits out and says,im going to cut the cost of education in half. why should have you to pay-- >>> indication that obammal triangulate, moderate? >> i agree. >> sean: i am looki
. yeah, it stinks in here. but this has always been the obama way. they accused the republicans incessantly of voter suppression. but these people have been responsible for massive, collective, systemic, truth suppression. it is not just the white house that has to answer for this. but the lap dogs in the media. i would like to know, where were any outlets that were informed of this and told to keep it quiet isn't same way we know that many journalists were apprised of benghazi and kept quiet about it to serve this campaign's needs before the election. again, people's blood should be boiling. i think we have to redouble our efforts to try to shed some light on these matters? >> i mean, we have four dead americans in libya. and we don't know what the president newknew. did he know we requested security before? where was he when this was happening? did he -- was he told that that was being watched in realtime isn't president got through nearly 3 months in this election process, without having to answer -- two months without answering any of these questions. >> that's right. let's
, republicans barely held onto majority in the house. this year, obama won by a narrower george and republicans maintained, retained a relatively large house majority although not as large as democrats had after 2006 and 2008 election. so i think john boehner has some basis for saying that as the president has demanded, so do house republicans. popular vote for house republicans will probably come out something like 50-48, by which obama beat romney. that hasn't been fully tabulated yet. back about 20 years ago, circa 1990, political scientists and pundits said republicans have a lock on the presidency and democrats had a lock on the house. they had all sorts of good reasons why this was so. the democrats picked the lock on the presidency in 1992, republicans broke the lock on the house in 1994. starting with this election, democrats have won four of the six presidential elections and won a plurality of popular vote in another. republicans have won majority in six out of eight elections for the house representatives. so, this is, no, eight out of 10. in the house of representatives. looking bac
, asian. and the obama got 71% or 72% of the asian vote. the future does not look like the republican party. if i were the republican party, they will have to do some real soul-searching about immigration, social and cultural issues, because this is not a party design for the future. if this were a business, you would say they have an inherently flawed business model for the future. the republican party, they have four years they need because they are coming out for some candidates that are awfully exotic. [laughter] my wife got me to stop using the term "wacko." not only do they take themselves down, but they define their party in a way that keeps people who ought to be able to win from winning. here is one last comparison. think about moderate republicans, the kind of people they need to be nominating more and more. think about the moderate republicans that ran on tuesday in blue states. think of scott brown, the former governor in hawaii, heather wilson in new mexico. they could not win because of their party's brand. heidi won. joe donnelly won. this is a one size brand contaminat
in 2010, when the republicans won all the seats, in the lame duck session of congress, president obama said this is not the time to increase taxes on anybody. the economy is not growing fast enough and we need small business owners to create jobs. nothing has changed between then and now except for the political outlook. unless he didn't believe what -- either he didn't believe what he said then, or he is trying to change the picture now. i agree with rush, i don't think conservatism lost, but i think that the republicans are completely out-campaigned. that i think is true. >> eric: president obama changed the level at which you can receive food stamps. he made it vastly easier to qualify for this food stamp program. santa claus. that is giving. take from people who pay taxes and giving -- >> andrea: when reagan took office, 29% of americans were getting some kind of government check. now it's 49%. social security was never intended to be a retirement program. if you remember at the inception. it's poised to go bust by the way. this is what happened. i think he was well organized. neve
. the republican party could have -- george bush did more on immigration than president obama did. if you look at the demographics that everybody keeps talking about. how did obama reach out to demographics? he reached out to them through student loans, amnesty programs for younger hispanics. birth control is the biggest thing. for sandra fluke to have a primetime speaking role at democratic convention when unemployment is almost 8% would be absurd in the typical standards of politics but this was deemed brilliant. it worked. guess what we had? not just poor women saying i want free birth control, we had women who could afford birth control, suburban college educated women turn out and say i want free birth control. this dependency politics is now -- >> bob: how do you account for 20 years? >> andrea: the demographics and the republicans should have reached out to. >> bob: how do you cout for 20 years of the gender gap for single snell there has tsingle ? >> andrea: they didn't used to vote. now they are one issue voters. >> dana: women voters interestingly on aside from the take the single wo
to call the republican leader in the house and the republican leader in the senate, he tried to call john boehner and mitch mcconnell but he was told they were asleep, quote after his speech, mr. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senate republican leader, mr. mcconnell but was told they were asleep. i realized it was a late night and everything but if the president calls you and you are asleep, do you not get woken up? isn't that sort of a standing order? one of the things we can all agree on the sort of thing you get out of bed for? the president's an on the phone, okay, i'll wake up and take the phone no matter who you are? no. john boehner and mitch mcconnell were still asleep and no woke them up. since then, they have made statements about what they see happening in this next year, indicating that maybe they also slept through the part of the night when the results of the election came in. mr. mcconnell put out a statement what's clear about this election is that the voters have not endorsed president obama's first term. the fact that the presid
in the minds of governor romney and republicans, but it hurt president obama when he said you didn't build that. those are pivotal statements made in the campaign which was a contest between government and individual freedom, opportunity, and entitlement and, unfortunately, for the republican party, their standard bearer and whatever else, and he is one of the fine of the men we have run for office but unfortunately for the republican party he could not articulate to the middle class and those who aspire to it, the reasons for fidelity to those values that make up the republican party. >>neil: what happens to the jazz base? they didn't come out. everyone was worried about the democrats being determined out and not into it but it was the other way around. >>reporter: it was. and it was interesting to see all of the analysis since election night but one big section of voters, a cross section of voters has been left out of the analysis and it is shocking. you don't hear people mentioning ron paul. what happened to the ron paul voters? it is as if were never under consideration. he didn't endorse m
republicans and rubio will be the headliner. >> president obama is sticking around for four more years but will his entire tab net do the same? some members already said they are ready to move on. shannon tells us who is in and who is out. >> well, ainsley, patti ann serving in a presidential cabinet is not an easy job. wait to see who sticks around for round 2. >> something i am in the process of trying to determine. >> as attorney general eric holder pates waits to determine with whether he will serve a second term it is clear the challenges he is facing could be held in contempt of congress are likely factoring in to the decision. >> do i have some gas left in the tank? it has been an interesting and tough four years. i really don't know. >> other key members of the president's cabinet already signalled they won't be around for a full 8 years including secretary of state hillary clinton. she does not intend to stay sparking speculation about who her successor may be. but her public role in controversial statements in the benghazi attack that left four americans dead could make a pot
obama has won re-election and can't become a one-term president, is there any chance republicans will actually accept him as their president and try to work with him instead of just rejecting him wholesale? >>> let me finish with my hope the president, his party, and the party can get down and do some dealmaking for the country. this is "hardball," the place for politics.
